"Tomatillo Salsa" (page 568) is green salsa, made from the small tomatillo which looks like a green tomato, and is in fact, a member of the nightshade family of vegetables, as is the tomato. An easy salsa to make, combining tomatillos, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime, and, as a surprise ingredient, capers. The instructions call for chopping and mincing all the ingredients, but I was feeling lazy the day I made this and decided to throw everything into the blender and make a smoother version of this salsa. If you are a fan of green salsas, this is definitely a recipe you will want to try. The recipe notes suggest this would be an especially good topping for rice and beans, and I would have to agree. It would be delicious anywhere you normally enjoy salsa!
